Makes sense. The difference is that for other packages that do this (eg, bind/named) I think they keep their executables outside of /var and don't have any scripts there.

I'm playing with using the symlink ( /var/spool/hylafax/bin --> /usr/local/bin/hylafaxbin ) to see if that solves the need here without having to remove the /var noexec flag and doesn't introduce any major security holes.

The problem with this is giving up the "install and forget" nature of using the pre-rolled RPM package for RHEL, and being able to say "my configuration is bog-standard" when asking the hylafax-users list for help. :)

Thanks for the info.
